The Geometry of Supersymmetry: A concise introduction

The Geometry of Supersymmetry: A concise introduction

Norbert Poncin and Sarah Schouten – GJM, Volume 8, Issue 1 (2023), 1-57.

This text is a short but comprehensive introduction to the basics of supergeometry and includes some of the recent advances in colored supergeometry. We do not aim for a standard text that states results and proves them more or less rigorously, but all too often offers little insight to the uninformed reader. Instead we opted for a smooth exposition of the successive themes, choosing an order and an approach which are close to the way these pieces of mathematics could have been or were discovered, thereby highlighting the reasons for the various choices and facilitating deeper understanding. We hope that the text will be useful for PhD students and researchers who wish to acquire knowledge in the geometry of supersymmetry.
